The mid-season trailer for the premier of Supergirl has been revealed! The Kevin Smith directed episode is called "Supergirl Lives" and the synopsis is as follows:
“Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper Carr’s (Ian Gomez) order to leave it alone. Kara takes Mon-El (Chris Wood) with her to the last place Izzy was seen and the duo find themselves thrust through a portal to another planet, Slaver’s Moon, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves. The leader of the trafficking ring is none other than Roulette (Dichen Lachman). To make matters worse, Slaver’s Moon has a red sun, which means Kara and Mon-El are stripped of their powers and stuck on the planet with no way home. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Alex (Chyler Leigh) blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie (Floriana Lima) and too complacent in watching out for her sister.”
Here is the trailer:
I decided to take a look at Kevin Smith's contribution to the CW world. If you have no idea who Kevin Smith is, well he is the co-star and creator of Jay And Silent Bob, he created Clerks and Dogma, and most recently his big project is Comic Book Men on AMC. Make no mistake, this guy LOVES comics, and when he touches a show we generally get greatness.
Flash Season 2 Episode 21: The Runaway Dinosaur
This was his first go on the CW, and had his normal dialogue based style when Flash had to track down and trap the meta-human Girder. Throughout the episode Barry is able to gain a semblance of closure as he tries to move on from his mother's death, and the episode is centered around a childhood book he read, "The Runaway Dinosaur."
Flash Season 3 Episode 7: Killer Frost
A great episode, and one that I think solidified his future in the CW world. Outside of the introspective of Caitlin's character, this episode was more focused on Wally West, or Kid Flash if you will. Caitlin goes pure Killer Frost in this episode, and it takes Barry to calm her down, with a little help from the Tom Cavanaugh's character, H.G. This was Smith's best work, and makes me long for more.
Supergirl Season 2 Episode 9: Supergirl Lives
Well here we are, and all we have is the synopsis. In 10 days on Jan 23rd we will get to see how well he does, and I for one am crossing my fingers.
